Dustin Poirier is no longer the same fighter that faced Conor McGregor back in 2014, but this fight will put to the test who has evolved more if he or The Notorious. The favorite is the Irishman, very concentrated on this fight despite his boastful pose and open character.
The first time they saw each other. The Diamond was beaten with some ease by Conor, who since the beginning of the fight showed more confidence. Now the American is not ready for McGregor to dominate him again from the beginning of the fight like then. The strategy is to hurt him and put him in uncomfortable situations.
Make him feel uncomfortable and turn this fight into a battle of resistance explained Poirier, whose plan involves a long fight and probably exploiting his boxing, an art that his rival has greatly enhanced. Can he wear down a rival as intense as McGregor? There are only a few hours left to know the answer. Without further ado.
The Diamond has indicated that this fight will have nothing to do with 2014 one, starting with the fact that he has not paid much attention to the media noise around him: I have grown a lot. We both grew up, this is a different fight now and we have 25 minutes to prove who is the best
I think my maturity brings a different factor to this fight. I was a younger fighter at the time. I heard criticism and opinions much more than now. Now I don’t care what the people think or say.
